A symbolic link is a disk directory entry that takes the place of a directory entry for a file, but is actually a reference to a file in a different directory. A symbolic link is also called an alias, shortcut, soft link, or symlink.

This field is used by the IDataObject interface and the DataObject class to specify the data type.

When adding to an IDataObject or to an implementation of DataObject, use this field as the format for the IDataObject.SetData and DataObject.SetData methods.

To see if an object of this type exists, use this field as the format for the IDataObject.GetDataPresent and DataObject.GetDataPresent methods.

To get an object of this type, use this as the format for the IDataObject.GetData and DataObject.GetData methods.
